Planning Appeal Decision – Solar Farm, Minchens Lane

The Government Planning Inspector has reached a decision for planning application 20/03403/FUL, for the installation of a large solar farm at Minchens Lane.  The appeal has been allowed, meaning that the application has got planning permission to go ahead.  Details of the application can be found on the Basingstoke & Deane Borough Council website.

The Inspector concluded that ‘the proposal would make a material and early contribution to the objective of achieving the decarbonisation of energy production and that to allow the proposed solar farm would not conflict with the objectives of relevant development and national planning policy when taken as a whole.’  The full decision notice can be viewed here.
